If birth is supposed to be because of Karma, what Karma did your very first birth have? There is some criticism that this is not a proper novel as such. But then, that would be limiting what someone could write.

Mookajji, Subbaraya, Seethe, Anantaraya exist as totems for different belief systems and mainly to create the arguments and get the points across. But the writing and narrative is kept interesting so it doesn't feel like someone is standing on a stage and lecturing away. As Karanth mentions in the preface - there are no protagonists or antagonists in this book. Definitely a must read if you know Kannada.

I've known to read and write kannada since the age of 9, but despite having consistently read short stories and articles in the language, I hadn't read a single kannada novel until I was This book is a social commentary, which K Shivarama Karanth weaves through the magical medium of Mookajji - an old woman who can see the past and pr I've known to read and write kannada since the age of 9, but despite having consistently read short stories and articles in the language, I hadn't read a single kannada novel until I was This book is a social commentary, which K Shivarama Karanth weaves through the magical medium of Mookajji - an old woman who can see the past and present of anything she comes in close proximity with.

It could be the true nature of a man hiding his true intentions, or an old relic from an abandoned cave - Mookajji and her visions can revisit every event that has involved them. This book was written in and it is at once a blend of magical realism, social critism and a deep scrutiny of the human condition - which through its myriad characters explores the different stigmas and blind beliefs present in our society and tries to lay it bare through Mookajji's piercing words.

Such is the nature of her arguments that they stay relevant even today, more than five decades after it was first published.

There is a statement about the book by one of the reviewers etched at the back of the hardcover - "Karanth proves here that modern thought is not necessarily born out of western influence" and he is indeed right. Mookajji is a character who will forever stay in my memory and is arguably one of the most distinct and memorable characters you will ever come across.

There is no particular story here.

The characters are written such that each of them represent a certain belief system and the dialogue presents valuable insights to ponder over. The writing is very lucid and simple and can be read by anyone who has learnt to read kannada in school.

If you can read kannada, there is no reason why you shouldn't read this book. As for me, I now a have healthy list of kannada books to read that I've missed all this while.

This is the first Jnanapeetha award winning novel that I have read. I was very much interested in reading an award winning novel.

Mookajjiya Kanasugalu

I was not that much impressed by the title then. I thought that "Mookajji" means a dumb lady and her thoughts.

So, after I started reading, it became apparent that the meaning was somewhat different. Many say that Kannada literature is extremely rich.

But we only don't read our books. If you read, you come to know how great and rational thinkers our authors are. Kuvem This is the first Jnanapeetha award winning novel that I have read. Kuvempu, S. Bhyrappa, K. Shivaram Karantha all have great depth in their writing. It is basically a book about a family in Udupi and the oldest one in the family is the Mookambika ajji or mookajji.

Everyone in the village call the ajji mentally unstable because she sometimes chats with herself, shouts some non sense. But only her grandson Subraya knows that she is a brilliant lady lady and he believes she has some supernatural power of telling the past happened things. He often listens to her talks and clears his confusions.

Shivram Karantha uses this character to tell the confusions about origin of life, gods,religions in the minds of common people and how religions evolved based on the selfish instincts of some, how gods that are worshipped by people changed as empires came and went.

Ajji character is a rational thinker who questions every beliefs which we have about gods, salvation, relationship of man and woman. Some reviewer on the cover page has rightly said "There is no need of westernization for modern liberal thinking". I had read " Devaru " by Moorthirao which has similar perspective about gods and religions. Even S.

Bhyrappa has similar views like Karantha about religious works like Ramayana and Mahabharata and it is evident in his books"Parva" and "Uttarakanda" If "Mookajjiya Kanasugalu" has got Jnanapeetha award, "Devaru" has got Pampa award,then there's no fault in hoping a Jnanapeetha award for "Parva" or any other works of S.

Bhyrappa which have equal wisdom compared to these books. Apr 07, Shrusti rated it really liked it. I agree with most of the things this person says. We should be able to question things. We should see things as they are. The book mainly revolves around the conversations between a grand mother and grand son. The grandmother is presumed to be mad and deficient in her senses as per the world. She speaks a lot within herself and shares weird stories to people and hence people assume her to be losing her senses from age old.

But as the book goes on , things look different. I felt that its more like people are not at all able to understand her wavelength.

During most of the conversations between the grandmother and the The book mainly revolves around the conversations between a grand mother and grand son.

Shivarama Karanth must have done immense research before writing this and the best part is, he presents the alternate viewpoints without hurting anybody's sentiments or beliefs and its more like putting across one's opinion without offending anyone Nov 24, Suresh rated it it was amazing Shelves: Aug 18, Suresh H S rated it it was amazing. Especially the concept of Mookajji is exciting one. The main character of the novel a curious, adventurous common man Subbaraya, with the visions of "Mookajji" and using events of the past and future from his village, reasons out existing beliefs, superstitions, customs, festivals, religions, gods, demons, life,death, love,life after death etc.

Nov 17, Achutha Nanda rated it really liked it. One of the excellent books I have read. No wonder this bagged JnanaPeeTa award.

The conversations happening between grandson and granny is out of the world. The ever curious grandson asking plethora of doubts about anything and everything to his granny and she throwing her out of the world perceptions on each of those things is a feast to read.

The wisdom she lends us shall be really helpful for lifetime. I am sure many of my views have been changed forever after reading Mookajjiya KanasugaLu.

I One of the excellent books I have read. I wish i have an ajji granny always beside me to walk me in my life. Definitely an incredible book for its time. Which is a function of Sivaram Karanth's ability to step outside his culture to take a critical, skeptical look at it. The clarity with which he does is wonderful to read. It helped me see how the ideas and issues that the book tackles could be framed so as to show how everyone is coming at them from the same intention - the desire to live a decent, "good" life.

This book's relevance has not reduced in the 40 years since it was published. Jan 16, Mahesh rated it really liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

A beautiful and engaging narration of the dreams of "Mookajji" that connects, contrasts and conveys the blind beliefs and practices of society in the s against the backdrop of spiritual faith and scientific thinking. The author is far far ahead in time in terms of thinking and awesome narration. Jun 25, Kiran Prabhu rated it really liked it. Karanth has pen down this book with lot of thoughts.

The very essence of the book lies in its simplicity to question our age old practices through the eyes of an ajji. The conversations she has with his grand son is both revolutionary and thought provoking.

If you are comfortable with Kannada spoken in some of the rural villages , then worth a try. Feb 06, Prathima Deepak rated it it was amazing Shelves: I was thinking twice if I should start this book or not, but once I got the grip of the narration, I could not stop reading.

After reading this book, our perceptions towards religions, traditions, God and other ancient believes surely changes. It does makes us think in a broader way. But his college degree in history makes him to learn more about history and he always believed that, his village Mudur has a long lasting history of more than years. He often tries to go into forests and caves around his village and collect some of the old artifacts and show it to his grandmother to know the details of those items.

He always beleived that, his grandmother had special magical powers that, with just a touch of things, she can able to recall most of the history behind those artifacts. This special quality of Mookajji what attracted Subraaya, that made him to pose hundreds of questions everyday. At the same time, Mookajji is happy to answer all of his question in her own way which is the lucid part of the novel. The best takeaway from the book is when Subraaya poses questions on God's existence and the answers given by granny Mookajji in her own way makes the reader to chuckle.

Mookajji had her own belief and stories about Idol worship, Tantric experts, Jainism and Buddhism.

According to the book, Mookajji was able to visualise many of the things as if it is happening in front of her eyes. These events made Subraaya to ask many questions and he enjoyed the various stories told by his granny. Overall, going by the content and quality of the book and the simple way it was presented, I recommend every reader who is really eager to read yester year's kannada books, must read this awesome book.
